April - October 2010 / "Nishinomiya Funasaka Biennale" Hyogo Japan

There was a project called IKIRO Village in Nishinomiya Funasaka Biennale. It ran for 6 months including preparation time. Takahiro got an idea to go back to the roots of creation. He called people to join the project. The members of IKIRO Village increased gradually and became a community. They planted seeds of many kinds of vegetables in the field. They also made plates and cups from local mud. At the end they made “IKIRO Village Café” and saved food with the plates and the cups they made, and the vegetables they grew. In the cafe people wrote sheets of IKIRO and hung them in the room.
